Additionally, she received training for 9 months from Istanbul Birth Academy and obtained the title of Birth Preparation Educator, enabling her to work with couples, mothers, and expectant mothers. She works with adults, couples, and families on various issues such as anxiety disorders, depression, loss and grief, trauma, relational difficulties, and conflicts and adjustment problems within families and couples.


She also engages in fieldwork after traumatic events in society and has participated in individual and group work with individuals affected by the 2015 Soma mine disaster, the 2016 Istanbul Atatürk Airport terrorist attack, and the 2019 Covid-19 pandemic as a member of voluntary support teams.


Since 2019, she has been practicing in Strasbourg, France, providing online psychotherapy and seminar services.
